John Carter Brown Library - Peru Collection

The John Carter Brown Library has one of the five largest collections of early Peruviana in the world. It is not just the number of Peruvian imprints of the colonial, independence, and early national periods held by the John Carter Brown Library that is important, however, but the diversity of those materials and in a great many instances, their singularity - being only known copies. The subjects range from ecclesiastical matters, to government papers, to indigenous language studies, and important literary works.

In the "Alcance al Mercurio peruano," Lima, 1833, Rodríguez made a violent attack on General O'Higgins, accusing him of being responsible for the assassination of Manuel Rodríguez in 1818. The Acusacion is a defense of O'Higgin, consisting chiefly of documents relating to the revolutionary career of the general. The true author of the Acusacion was José Joaquín de Mora, Juan Ascencio having been a pseudonym. See the "Prólogo" to t. 12 of the Colección de historiadores...
